worked with me on your bill making many changes at my request. they have made the bill better and reduced the negative side effects of previous versions. i trust you think so as well because you have included the changes in the new bill. the new bill in your substitute amendment also included a revised bill by senators gillibrand and kirk on the subject of gun trafficking. those revisions also reflect changes that i asked senator gillibrand to make, and i think it would be worthwhile to outline all the changes that have been made to the bill since they were first introduced. i think they demonstrate good faith of the chairman and senator gillibrand. for instance, senator gillibrand's bill originally would have made it a federal crime to transfer two or more guns if that person knew that the result would be a violation of state or local law. that would have given states and localities a one-way incentive to address new gun control measures and force the cost of prosecution and incarceration on the federal government. it also would have created for the first time a situation in whic

it and how can we change it. d i have told them and scythed example after -- cited example after example. t's only in recent years we've seen the debilitation of the legislative process. i think it's important to engage the public as we are doing and getting ideas on how we can reform congressionally and politically as well as reform. that's important. and that's why getting a spectrum from the public across the country is going to be crucial in this regard. and then the other part of it is using and harnessing the social media to make your elected officials accountable. there is no reason they ought to be taking recesses when they are facing a sequester frankly. the debt ceiling back in 2011. half our time in the senate between january and june, half of our time was not spent on legislative business. in fact in 2011 alone, it was one of the fewest number of days we've been in session since 1992 and here it was coinciding with one of the event that created the highest level of policy uncertainty of any event over the last 20 years, surpassing the wars, surpassing the financial cr

control our own energy future while reducing pollution that contributes to climate change. few people of played more for role in addressing these issues than current secretary of energy. he has helped speed the transition to more sustainable sources of energy. he has given more of our brightest young scientists the opportunity to pursue the idea that will shape our future. i cannot be more grateful to steve for the incredible contributions he has made to this country. now that he has decided to leave washington for sunny california, i'm proud to nominate another billion scientists to take its place, mr. ernest moniz. there is ernie. [applause] the good news is he already knows his way around the department of energy. he is a physicist by training, and also served as undersecretary of energy under president clinton. since then, he has directed mit's energy initiative, which brings together prominent thinkers and energy companies developed technologies that can lead us to more energy independence and also some new jobs. most importantly, he knows that we can produce more energy a

experience simply put, our kids are being short changed by adults here in washington. this is an adult problem and it's time for adults to be adult and to come into this body and work together and solve this for our children and their future. let's make the right choice. adequately fund our schools and look out for our children. i yield back. mr. jeffries: thank you, congressman horsford. and i think what's important as it relates to the moment that we find ourselves in right now in america, that there are some who make the argument that the reason why the sequestration cuts perhaps were acceptable is because we've got to do something to deal with our out-of-control spending problem. that's the phrasiology that's often used. that we have here in america. and certainly, when you think about the debt number that we have, $16 trillion, it strikes you as an extremely troubling situation. and then, of course, we have had debates back and forth as it relates to the debt ceiling and suggestions from some in this chamber that the president's effort to raise the debt ceiling is evidence of his

am so hopeful that the president will change course. we know the policies of defense that work are peace through strength. i hope he will change his policies and recognize we must have peace through strength and not have a circumstance of potential attacks due to weakness. i am honored to be here with the chairwoman of the oversight committee. >> there is a better way to cut spending than slash our military. in august of 2011, that is exactly what this was about, the harm the president's sequester would do to our military families. i cannot help but think about that mom whose husband is on his third or fourth deployment and she is watching all of this play out on the news and wondering whether or not she is going to be able to put food on the table, all while her husband is in harm's way fighting for the freedom and liberty you and i enjoy. it is unconscionable what the president is doing. we cannot tax our way out of the sequester. we cannot tax our way out of debt. the president received his tax increase in january. it is time he got serious so we can reprioritize what matters mo

, with its world changing assertion that all men are created equal then there are no hispanic issues or african american issues for women issues. there are only american issues. [applause] cpac, in order to be effective and have any power to change things for the better, as conservatives, we must leave no american behind. even those who may disagree on some issues because there is a solid, and ground -- a solid common ground. they are not our enemies. they are our sisters and brothers. they are and neighbors and friends. it is imperative to reach out and share that conservative message of liberty and less government and lower taxes and individual responsibility. it is time we all stop preaching to the choir. america already has one party against one another. we will never win a, a test of identity -- a contest of identity politics. we have to believe in america greatest achievement -- that no one is guaranteed success the everyone is guaranteed an equal opportunity at success.

bottom line. i am a fighter by nature. unfortunately, the process has changed in the united states senate. it is no longer reconciling differences. if either side has a position, once that fails, it means the site has to vote and they do not move to try to resolve those differences. they become irreconcilable. the question is how you get past those differences. that is the fundamental problem in the united states senate. you have more and more lawmakers in the house and the senate, 43 new senator since 2008 and then you have the 2014 election. been part ofnot the legislative body and are not familiar about how to make a law. i always threatened to go to the becomes law,bill remind everybody how it works. it is true. we do not have an amendment process, committee process, everything has broken down. i came to the sad conclusion the fight needs to be taken on the outside. that is why this is so appropriate to engage the public to demand change and to reward those that are willing to engage in consensusbuilding and compromise. and penalize those that do not. >> that event taking place

objective change several times in one night. nor are these questions once of a legal nature, by the way. judges are accustomed to making legal determinations based on a defined federal set of facts, a picture that has already been painted. these are not one-time-only we want military and national officials to continually assess these two questions until the last minute before and operation. if these types of continual reassessments must be submitted to a member of the article 3 branch of government for a violation, i believe a compromise our government's ability to conduct these operations effectively. the cost will outweigh the benefits. in that event, i believe we will also discourage the type of continual re-evaluation i am referring to. that leads to believe the question of whether the objective is in fact a senior leader of a al qaeda plotting to kill americans. of those of heaven vinified, this one is actually the simplest and most freight forward, but it is the only one that's got to be referred to a court, in my view. those i have identified. asks a question we should in eve
